Happy New Year Everyone!
I am joining Iteachbilinguals linky party!
If you are in Spain you are still on Holiday. If you are a dual language teacher in the U.S. You will be back to school soon. So I think that this is a good freebie for you:
It is a Wise Men simple craftivity that you can use to write a letter to the Reyes Magos. It could be a Thank You letter if you go back to school on the 7th or you could just write a poem. That is what we did.
The printable file includes head and hands on one page, 2 beards for two students on the next page, 2 crowns for to students on the third page and the writing paper. If you want to create your own writing paper, the FREE border is from Kinda Art.
I highly recommend printing the face/hands page on colored paper to avoid extra coloring.
To do the crowns we first drew the top part, you can see each student has a different design on top. I asked them to make a few ‘big mountains’ instead or lots of tiny ones for easy cutting. Then we decorated with stickers.

Have fun and enjoy the linky!
I just love GoNoodle! My kids love it too. And it is free!
What else can you ask for?
Some of my teacher friends don’t use it because it is not in Spanish. But this it can be easily adapted.
Here you can see a screenshot I took of my computer.
My kids do not understand most of the brain breaks. They find them funny but they just don’t understand. So what I do is that I use the dance/run ones. They even catch some of the lyrics. Zumba is easy but their favorite is Koo Koo Kagaroo.
One of the things that I like about GoNoodle is Maximo or the other relaxing videos. My kids don’t understand them at all. They just can’t follow.
What can you do? Just click on the YouTube icon and add what you need. We all have our favorite Spanish songs, chants… I added some relaxing ones and the times tables songs. So worth it!
Once you have the videos that you like you just use them in the classroom.
As soon as we started GoNoodling in the classroom parents asked me about it. You can invite them to use it at home by sending a letter home.
I have created some Spanish posters. Feel free to use them There are some great printables on the GoNoodle blog too.
Another great thing about GoNoodle is that you can buy lots of goodies on their GoNoodle store. My kids went crazy when I gave them tattoos last year. I may get some pencil for my new firsties.
Remember to use the Back to School code if you want to get some goodies.

This has been a busy week. We have been preparing for Fallas and St. Patrick. I used this easy printable with my secondgraders before our tests.
I have included English-Spanish and capital letters too. Enjoy!
They love everything crafty!
I also loved our Leprechaun directed drawing. Jennifer is an artist. And this was just perfect for my Art lessons in English.
We needed three 45 minutes lessons to complete them. But the results are worth it!
We draw them with pencils and colored with watercolors. On the last day they traced them with the black markers. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
